Autosport to launch video service

Autosport TV logoF1 news site Autosport will launch a new video service called Autosport TV on August 20th.

A demo version of the service that went live for subscribers today features clips from recent touring car races and world rally championship rounds, as well as an interview with Spyker F1 driver Adrian Sutil.

It’s not yet known whether Haymarket publishing have had any joy in prising a few minutes of F1 race footage from Bernie Ecclestone’s icy grasp – but I wouldn’t be too optimistic. Autosport subscribers will be able to enjoy the footage ad-free. Links below.

    Presumably the $51m also includes the rights to broadcast qualifying, so you could take that into account too, probably works out at something like $20,000 per minute. Still, hefty.

  2. 27 + 18 hours = 45 hours
    $51m / 45h = $1.13m per hour
    $1.13m / 60 = $18,888.89 per minute.

    Sometimes I wonder if the ITV people ever do the maths for these things?

  3. it was the 20th August *2007* wasn’t it?

  4. Yeah I had a look for it at lunch time… they’re teasing us!

  5. Well it’s there now. And it works – the demo version never worked for me.
